Altar Guild – Spring 2024

Palm Sunday recalls the story in Christian Scripture of Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem, greeted by people waving palm branches. Palm Sunday occurs on the Sunday before Easter.  This celebration celebrates Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem, mentioned in each of the four Gospels. Jesus entered the city knowing He would be tried and crucified and welcomed His fate to rise from the grave and save us from sin! Palm Sunday marks the beginning of Holy Week, the remembrance of Jesus’ last days.

In many churches, Palm Sunday is observed with the blessing and sharing of palm branches, symbolizing the branches placed in front of Christ as he entered Jerusalem.  It is a reminder for Christians to welcome Jesus into their hearts and to be willing to follow Him.

The Trinity Altar Guild decorates the church the day before Palm Sunday with palms from their yards and around the Trinity Campus.  It is a wonderful time of camaraderie, learning and blessings.

If you are interested in becoming part of the Altar Guild please contact Suzy Bagan (suzy@bagan.me) or Tammy Delaporte (t1y2r3e@aol.com).  We would love to have you join us.
